    here's a few pics i shot on my holiday for her as a favor... she works in the entertainment biz and has been hugely dissatisfied with her studio shoots with bigger/better photogs... asked me to shoot some coz somewhere my street portraits struck a chord with her.. they still need 'processing' and 'cleaning' up before i print and send....
    so here goes...

    Beautiful shots of a beautiful lady.

    As far as critique, the first one is a little dark. I'd lighten her face a bit. It would also help bring out her eyes, which are hidden in shadow. The blur on the left is also a little distracting, so I would crop that out.

    I really like the second one. I might just burn in where her hair "parts". It's a bit light, which attracts the viewers eye. If it were darker, the eye would be free to roam about her face.

    I really like the last one, also. I'd just burn in her hair at the top right and crop out the blur to the left of that dark bar for the same reason; they are a bit distracting. Really great expression and light here.

    I love the shots where you've included that great wall texture.

    hey mansi...I love these shots. Very down-to-earth feel to them with the soft light. I like the contrast of the softness of the model with the rough textured wall...really accentuates and enhances her beauty.
    Love the look she's giving in that first shot and the close pose against the wall makes it! Agree with mark on opening up the shadows in that one.
    second is a beautiful pose and the light roks it...only niggle would be that I think the main focus should have been on the front-most eye...but you could prob tweak the sharpness in PS.
    third one is a classic. Just a stunning portrait. Think she'll love it.
    The BW pops..it's got an active feel to it wioth the windswept hair....nice.
    The last is a beauty too...very sweet pose and your DOF is superb in all of them. I know you used your 70-200 f4 for these. It did the trick nicely.
    Great shots all round :thumbsup: :D

    dont mean to be rude or mean but you could possibly photoshop blur her face a bit to make it seem smoother with less bleamishes(sp?) but good shots none the less!
